It’s impossible not to find Richard E. Grant to be one of the absolute nicest people on the planet. His personality is just so infectious, his vibrancy so effusive, that you all but swoon. Grant is just that awesome a person. It doesn’t hurt either that he’s a wonderful character actor, someone who relishes his job. Just look back to when he was on the campaign trail for Can You Ever Forgive Me?, which scored him his first Oscar nomination. How he navigated the season and the pursuit of an Academy Award was so joyous and pure, you couldn’t help but root for him. A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to hop on Zoom and discuss his role in the new musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie. As you might imagine, I relished the chance, which I’m sharing with you all today.
Below, you can see my conversation with Grant. While this was to promote Everybody’s Talking About Jamie and we definitely discussed it plenty, I couldn’t help myself. Not only is there a small mention of Star Wars, I very mildly bring up Loki as well, since he stole the show there for a time on that series. As you might imagine, he was happy to get into it all, really putting forth his distinctive personality the whole way. It was a pleasure, plain and simple. Grant steals his scenes in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, easily walking away with the film. The movie is in theaters today, ahead of a streaming debut next week, so definitely consider giving it and him, a look. If you’re a Grant fan, you’ll be in for a treat…
